    Phone/Cig/gadget holder

    Bought this at WalMarts for $5 and some change to use on our trip to AZ and back. We knew the cup holders would be full with our drinks and needed some place to put the cig pack and phone within easy reach. The black strap you see going into the vent is a bendable metal covered with a gortex type material. Just bend a " U " hook and slide it in the vent. Easy to take out if needed. A person could also just use Velcro on the small plastic piece the attaches to the strap and ignore putting something in the vent. I just didn't want to adhere any Velcro up top. Photo shows the cig pack. The Samsung Note 3 I took the pic with was sitting nicely behind the cig pack. We're still using it, after the trip:

    For starters, there isn't a voltage gauge on the Mirage. Also, I like the water temp gauge. I am currently working with SG on the CVT trans temps. That will be a nice feature for those of us with CVT's.

    There are a few other good features, but it's easier for you to read what the SG does online than for me to explain them all here.

    Looks like my car. I mounted my scanguageII in the same place. It's not so easy
    to see from someone on the outside but I can see it just fine. I really like having
    a coolant temp gauge and I read the instant mpg's. It can also read trouble codes
    and lots of trip stats. I think it;s a really handy device to have.
